1995 volvo 850 turbo no hot air

My heater is not working. i started my car this morning and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Once i got in the car it was only blowing out cold air. I checked and everything was in the right position. It worked fine last winter but not now. I have also noticed that the fan stays on a few minutes after i have parked the car. i have barely used the air conditioner, could really use your help if possible.

Low on coolant would be my first guess. Does the temp gauage go up to middle, normal range?Should have a low coolant light on dash, but sometimes the sensor is diabled or broken. I would relace the t-stat and the sensor next to the t-stat housing. Tou will need a 40 torx to get the t-stat off.

I have a 1994 Volvo 850 that did the same thing. It was the fuel pump relay, a $50 part that is easy to replace yourself. It could also be the thermostat ($75) in the air flow box. Some people remove the bad thermostat and fix the air flow tube in the position with the air flow coming in from the front of the car. People say you can freeze your engine in winter if you live in a cold climate. It rarely gets cold where I live so it wasn't a problem for me. You do get better gas mileage without that thermostat. I ran my car without the thermostat for about a year and then put a new one in because I started having rough idling problems when the engine had not warmed up yet. The thermostat funnels in hot air from the manifold (?) until the engine warms up and then the spring in the thermostat closes off the tunnel with that hot air flow and opens up the tunnel with the cooler air flow coming in from the front of the car. If the thermostat quits working, the hot air keeps coming in and the engine shuts off after about 10 minutes of driving. The car will usually start right up after you wait a few minutes. These symptoms don't usually show any engine codes.

1995 volvo 850 turbo wagon will not start all of a


You can check 2 things. 1., have someone in the car to turn the key to the start position. Tap the starter with a small hammer and see if it cranks. If it does, replace the starter. 2., have the battery tested as well as the connections to the battery. Corrosion builds and can cause heavy resistance to heavy loads(like starting). These are the 2 most likely causes. Let me know if you need further assistance.

My 1995 volvo 850 turbo is hard to start when hot.


Check fuel pressure regulator.
Pull out vacuum line from regulator and see if there any gasolin inside . If there is , it's your problem. Broken diaphragm inside fuel pressure regulator.
Replace fuel pressure regulator.
If not , further diagnostics has to be performed by workshop.

MY 1995 VOLVO 850 TURBO STATION WAGON IS HAVING PROBLEM STARTING. ON THE DASH BOARD AN ARROW IS POINTING TO THE BATTERY. IS IT THAT SIMPLE TO IDENTIFY THE PROBLEM. PLUS THE CAR HAS BEEN SITTING FOR A YEAR...


If a car has been sitting for that long then the battery is going to be bad 90% of the time. Get a new battery and put some fresh gas in and you will on the road,.when you go to the parts store have them check the old battery to make sure but I bet that it is bad.

My 1995 Volvo 850 Turbo has some a/c drama. It is blowing really really HOT air out and won't turn off at times. Was working fine 'til I was on my way home from having windows tinted and it just started...


I am sorry to say: Replace AC-control unit. The whole box with the controls and everything.

I-ve been told that some have managet to fix it by replacing some resistors inside the controller, but the problem came back.

Remove the knobs for temperature adjustment, remove the two screws that is behind them, and pull the box out.

Assembly in the reverse order.
